I attached the heads with a 3 inch deck screw going through a cable clamp and a 1 1/2 stainless washer. Glued the heads with construction adhesive. The heads have a built up inner post that took the screw well.

Those really look good Bob. What do you think of the Water Walker up against fence? Worth the money?

Take care,

Good morning, Bob~


My jaw always drops when I see your Magnum Opus. Fabulous rig!


And - yes - you did well with those Lines of Demarcation on those drakes.



This pair are E Allens:








All the best,

thanks for the kind words to all and especially to all that have chimed in with suggestions and tips. To reference one of my earlier posts in this thread, our Top Men have been a good resource to me in this project. I have taken a couple of weeks off and have been at the cabin up north in MN. I've been looking after my flowers and working on the cabin because there is always something to do here. The walleye bite is off now so heading home tomorrow to pick up where I left off. 3d printed heads are ready to turn into hens this time. One last sauna and back to Chicago (ugh).

Put some feather detail on the backs just because. I made some basic stencils and then went back with a fine brush and painted the centers and cleaned them up a bit. It's easier to paint the feathers this way without the heads on.

That is 100 GWT hens painted and ready for texas rigging. The three that i pulled out were from a painting session that was super simple but now that i look at them I should have just gone that way on all the backs. The other ones have the stenciled back feathers. I think i should have done them all like these three. There are 50 tick marks in each head so 5000 in all done over 2 days. The drakes are done except for 20 that I am short heads. Next week should fix that.

I texas rigged the drakes at the club over the weekend while I had down time watching TV in the evening after working in the marsh.
I bought all the rigging supplies from SNL corp in FL and poured 4 ounce weight.
